THE FLOODS OF HURRICANE CONNIE AND DIANE
Winsted, Connecticut after the flood
In little over a week, two hurricanes passed by Southern New England in August 1955 producing major flooding over much of the region. Hurricane Connie produced generally 4-6 inches of rainfall over southern New England on August 11 and 12. The result of this was to saturate the ground and bring river and reservoir levels to above normal levels.
Hurricane Diane came a week later and dealt a massive punch to New England. Rainfall totals from Diane ranged up to nearly 20 inches over a two day period. The headwaters of the Farmington River in Connecticut recorded 18 inches in a 24-hour period. Both of these accumulations exceeded records for New England. The same is true of much of the flooding that resulted from these massive rainfall amounts
THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE
Had a beautiful evening. Tim took me out to eat and bought me beautiful roses and made a cake for me. Friday he had taken me out dancing. It was just lovely.
And all your greetings..I am in tears. So lovely. I can never thank you all enough.
More later....gotta go to work.
LOL, Beryl Blue! I used your name as my stage name for a short time before I thought of another one...heheheheh
BerylBlue, Happy Birthday. I'm also a 1955 baby. My Mom died before I left the WTS , but I did get to have a b'day bbq with my Dad and family before Dad passed away (4 yrs ago).
In China you would be a Sheep (or Goat both words are written and pronounced the same). You were the 8th animal to answer Buddhas call to be saved from (YES) the flood. A 1955 Sheep/Goat is also the element of Wood, color green, direction SW. Of course, this doesn't really mean anything but its fun to learn different customs.
Panda, I'm sorry about your parents. You must miss them so.
I miss my pretty, sweet mother a lot. She had her faults, but she was beautiful, beautiful.
